Wed, 08 Dec 2004
Just to let you know that the World's Craziest Motoring Event, the Plymouth-Dakar is about to fire off again. It now has a LHD rule so more cash can be raised at the Charity car auction at the end, which takes place in a LHD country.

Entries include two ice cream vans (which are LHD anyway link, Chevy Camaro, a Trabant, a fire engine, a Ford Thunderbird, two Volgas from Latvia and even a Citroen CX Safari, because the event is in Africa.

The West Country Ambulance service has donated a fully functioning
ambulance which will be pressed into service in Gambia.

Applications for entries in next year's event (Dec 2005) can be made throgu the website, but there will be a lottery as it is already oversubscribed.
